The University of Minnesota has licensed its solar and wind energystorage system to SustainX, a developer of energy storage technologies. The storage system was developed last year by a team of researchers led by Professor Perry Li. The system was developed to help make the storage of solar and wind energies more efficient, which would also make them more alluring for use in business, industry, and residential endeavors. SustainX will be using the system to create new storage technologies that may accomplish the goals University of Minnesota researchers had envisioned.
